Ok, here may be the problem, first reset your phone by pulling out the battery. Second, check to see if any of the other features you use with your touch buttons work (select to edit a contact for example) if that does work then it may be a problem I have been dealing with on my phone. The Chocolate has odd issues with it's lock mechanism on the side, check to see if it randomly locked. If it has unlock or if it hasn't contact verizon. They may replace your phone or they may do a hard reset and reinstall the software (this is as I have noticed more of a placebo than an actual fix) Yesterday I had mine hard-reset and I am still dealing with the headache of random issues this is one of the more common ones along with the white screen. After you go thru three to four phones they may replace it but until then hope you get one that works or you may end up with bald spots on the sides of your head from all the aggrivation ^^ hope I helped

There is two ways you can delete them.

You can eighter go in to the inbox and then press options and then press erase inbox. You can do the same thing with the sent messages.

Or when you go to the message menu press options and delete all. That would delete your sent, inbox, and drafts messages.

Lg chocolate wont hold very many texts

Unfortunately, the texts are stored on the internal memory of the phone in a special place just for text messages, and the limit of the inbox is going to max out at around 40 or 50 texts. Just delete them from the phone, or if you want to save them, you can always email them to yourself from the phone with the forward option, and put in your email address instead of a phone number. You will be charged the standard messaging rate if you dont have a text plan on your phone though.

Well, first what you want to do is go to your messages. You will see a menu that says New message Inbox and sent. Scroll down to your sent box and look at the message. Where the soft buttons are you will see on the right side it will say options and the left side will say erase.

Text messaging

Unfortunatly you have to call your cell carrier to RTN your phone which will erase everything in your phone. You may try to go to a store to get a software update.
FYI. I worked for Sprint for 3 years.
